A undocumented immigrant who is a maid at President Donald Trump's Bedminster, New Jersey golf club spoke out to The New York Times about the "humiliation" she has endured as a result of his rhetoric about immigration.
She also stated that there are many others undocumented workers employed at the golf club.
Morales told the paper she used fake documents to obtain a job at the Trump golf club in 2013.
Since Trump was elected president, he has launched several attacks on Latin American immigrants, at times comparing them to violent criminals.
Trump has called for a crackdown on immigrants in the country illegally.
None of the major presidential campaigns had signed up for E-Verify - even though some of them who were members of Congress did use the program for their congressional offices.
Morales has had dealings with Trump that go back years, and her husband has confirmed that she would on occasion come home jubilant because the club owner had paid her a compliment, or bestowed on her a $50 or sometimes a $100 tip.
Morales told The Times she is applying for asylum and is exploring a lawsuit claiming workplace abuse and discrimination.

Huawei Technologies CFO arrested in Canada, accused of violating Iran sanctions

Two months after Mr. Trump's inauguration, in March 2017, Ms. Morales said that she and other workers received a new employee handbook.
"We have tens of thousands of employees across our properties and have very strict hiring practices".
"The president has been half-serious about stopping illegal immigration by not taking away the jobs magnet", said Roy Beck, president of NumbersUSA, a group pushing to reduce immigration. Trump at the time denied hiring undocumented workers to build the hotel, according to CBS News.
A statement from their lawyer, Anibal Romero, says that a supervisor also hurled racial epithets at the women and threatened them with deportation. "If any employee submitted false documentation in an attempt to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately".
Romero has called for federal and state investigations into the matter.
The Trump Organization did not immediately respond to a request for comment, nor did the lawyer representing Morales.
They worked in maintenance and housekeeping roles, and one of them washed the Trump family's laundry. But companies are not required in most cases to take additional steps to verify the authenticity of documents. Noticing that Ms. Morales, who is shy of five feet tall, could not reach the top, he said, "Excuse me", grabbed her rag and wiped the upper portion of the glass.
She said she didn't have proper documentation, and she used false Social Security and permanent resident cards.
